  • *Dr. Childress loves his work & patients, you can see that with 1st visit. Best dr. I've ever had, never talks down, just plain English, & knowledgeable.

    Patient 15+ years never waited over 5-10 min. for app. start -

    All nursing staff is kind & helpful.

    15+ years as a patient has shown me that *Dr. Childress & staff & Lewistown, MO are 1st class.

  • Friendly environment

    As previously noted friendly and the care given during the visit.

    I recall 5 or 8 years ago when a contractor who works for us and others went to the La Belle clinic with chest pains, loss of breath. He was working nearby the area. The nurse practitioner saved his life by immediate responses and immediate transport to the Quincy Hospital.

  • Dr. Gene is one of the best listeners in the medical profession! He is kind, empathetic, and helpful. GREAT care!

    *Dr. Gene and staff always provide excellent care! They are kind and courteous, knowledgeable and attentive. I have always been well cared-for at this clinic!

  • Always treated with kindness and respect.

    Dr. Childress is excellent in every way. He is the greatest ever in QM group.

    I was at the clinic once when an emergency came in and I was well informed.

    Always good.

    Always had good experiences and consider Lewistown and surrounding are so fortunate to have *Dr. Childress and all employees.

  • Dr. Childress has always been very good at answering our questions - explaining in ways I can understand.
